Adding Branching Exercises into Your Moodle Course

Adding Branching Exercises into Your Moodle Course | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

Branching allows users to have a unique experience based on their interaction within an activity. It is a great way to simulate decision-making scenarios of real life events. In today’s post, I’m going to discuss techniques for designing branching exercises and suggest a few activities in Moodle to use for building them.

 

Building the Exercise in Moodle

 

Once you finish designing the activity, you are ready to build it. This is when your scenario will come to life. Two of my favorite activities in Moodle are Lesson and SCORM. Both are excellent choices for adding branching into your online course. Let’s take a look at each of them.

 

Lesson

 

The Lesson activity allows you to create question pages with automated feedback, and you can use it to remediate or incorporate conditional branching. Let’s say you want to make a scenario in your course so that students can apply a concept covered in the current week’s lesson plan. You would start by creating a Lesson activity. Then, you would provide the students with the scenario and question. Each time the student answers the question it will branch/jump them to a different page in the lesson, each having its own result. This means there will be multiple learning paths.

 

When using the Lesson activity in Moodle:

 

- Hide the lesson menu on your pages. This will completely immerse the students into the activity and force them to make decisions, rather than jumping to different pages using the menu.

- Enable a time limit when timing is critical to complete the exercise. It can also make the activity feel more like a game, which can add a level of engagement.

- Display the progress bar to students if you want them to know how they are progressing.

- Allow retakes so that students can try again, experience the different paths, and learn from their mistakes.

There are thousands of different ways to introduce programming to your class in fun and interactive ways for the upcoming Hour of Code (December 8-14). While most apps and tutorials do require internet connected computers or mobile devices, it does not mean that schools without this level of technology cannot get involved. In fact, coding with paper can be an even more engaging and meaningful way to introduce students to early programming concepts.

Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery

Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

Ten Disciplines of a Learner
We decided to continue the conversation on this topic at a faculty meeting. Several meetings later we had a new report card. We decided to give two grades and average them—one for “Learning,” the other for “Mastery.”

Sara might get an “F” in mastery and an “A” in learning, culminating in a “C” for the course. To be rigorous we picked ten observable behaviors and named them “Disciplines of a Learner:”

1.     Asks questions

2.     Builds on other people’s ideas

3.     Uses mistakes as learning opportunities

4.     Takes criticism constructively

5.     Speaks up

6.     Welcomes a challenge

7.     Takes risks

8.     Listens with an openness to change

9.     Perseveres in tasks

10.   Decides when to lead and when to follow.

Tomorrow's Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future - TeachThought

Tomorrow's Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future - TeachThought | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
Below are some ideas that are truly transformational–not that they haven’t been said before. It’s not this article that’s transformational, but the ideas themselves. These ideas aren’t just buzzwords or trendy edu-jargon but the kind of substance with the potential for lasting change.

And the best part? This is stuff that’s available not tomorrow with ten grand in classroom funding and 12 hours of summer PD, but today. Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y.

But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise.
